2021 Hourglass 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin
Product Code: 21S3101
This stunning hourglass themed coin features a miniature hourglass insert surrounded by a unique astrological design.
Representing the passage of time for hundreds of years, the image of an hourglass remains significant in modern culture. As the ‘sands of time’ slip away, the hourglass is a powerful symbolic reminder of the transience of all things.
The coin’s reverse portrays an astrological design incorporating sinuous, organic lines characteristic of art nouveau. Arranged around a central insert of a miniature hourglass, it includes stylised representations of the sun and moon with facial features, and phases of the moon - waxing, full and waning – embodying the passing of time. The design also features The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The obverse portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a ring of star motifs, as well as the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and year-date.
The coin is housed in a contemporary latex case within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
